Hi all, 


I went for blood tests lat week and found out that my Hyperthyroid is back after being in remission for 8 years. 


I was initially diagnosed in 2013, managed to control the levels through high dose Methimazole. Post that, I was on very low dose of Methimazole from 2013 - 2015 and completely stopped taking Methimazole. 


Just checking if anyone here has had a relapse experience? If so, what are the next steps that you took?

Hi pdaz:


I was not able to search the old posts to find out whether or not if there were still any positive TSI and TRAb antibodies at the time of the meds being stopped.


I have been off of meds since February, 2020.  At the time I did have small amounts of TSI and TRAb antibodies.  I haven't had a relapse.  I did work on removing many triggers to try to avoid relapsing.  Of course, if I do relapse, I would just get back on meds and work through and checking for triggers.
